Chef José Andrés told his staff at three Las Vegas restaurants that those businesses would close temporarily after service on Sunday night. Jaleo, é by José Andrés, and China Poblano at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas closed to impede the spread of COVID-19.

“In response to the increasing risk of COVID-19, we made the difficult decision to temporarily close Jaleo, é, and China Poblano after last night’s dinner service,” reads a press statement from parent company ThinkFoodGroup. “The restaurants’ food will be donated to employees. We’re grateful to all of our friends and family at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and the broader community for their continued support. We look forward to welcoming guests back in the future and in the meantime encourage everyone to follow best practices outlined by health officials to help stop the spread of coronavirus.”

Over the weekend, Andrés closed his restaurants in Washington, D.C., and New York City. Bazaar Meat by José Andrés at the Sahara is now open Wednesday through Sunday from 5:30 to 10 p.m.

The Cosmopolitan also closed Red Plate, Rose. Rabbit. Lie., Wicked Spoon, Overlook Grill, and Va Bene temporarily starting March 16.
